Paul Morrison is the firm's managing partner and focuses on personal injury, wrongful death, and high-profile criminal and domestic relations cases. He helped frame the law on the standard of proof in criminal matters in his successful appellate defense in the "Black Widow Killer" case, where he obtained an absolute reversal of his client's conviction for murder. Paul was also the driving force in helping to define appellate procedure in domestic cases where no transcript is available on appeal. Paul has been a Neutral Case Evaluator, trusted and appointed by the Fauquier Circuit Court for over 15 years.  Paul’s “out of the box thinking” and focus on solving problems and simplifying issues has earned him the respect of his peers and the loyalty of his client base as well as those he has helped as a third party neutral.

Paul received his Bachelor of Science degree with Honors from the University of Southern Mississippi and his law degree from Washington & Lee University as a prestigious Head Burks Scholar. Prior to establishing his present firm, Paul practiced law in Leesburg, Virginia where he was a member of the Board of Directors for the Loudoun County Bar Association. He is a member of the American Association for Justice and the Virginia Trial Lawyer's Association and is admitted to practice before all Federal Courts in Virginia as well as the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. Because of his success in personal injury matters, most notably wrongful death cases, he is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
